Trading and investing offers an exciting career path, but also demands a high level of theoretical knowledge and technical skill. This course offers you a springboard into employment with an investment institution, or as an investment specialist or manager. Suitable for graduates with strong mathematics skills, you will need a background of accounting, finance, economics, business administration, mathematics, science, statistics or engineering.

This demanding programme teaches theories and techniques of investments, as well as their real-life application. It is designed for graduates who want to develop a career in investment institutions, or who wish to become investments specialists or managers in other corporate bodies. Based mainly, but not exclusively, on practices in the UK, continental Europe, the USA and some emerging markets, this programme equips you with the skills and knowledge that you need to function as an investments specialist in domestic and international markets. Internationally renowned academic staff teach theory and technique, whilst their application is taught by professional traders with years of experience in the industry and first-hand knowledge of current market regulations, trading techniques, customs and practices. You also have access to a simulated dealing room, where a range of trading techniques can be practised.
